Default Installing new fan - GeForce 3 ti500

Hi,

My fan has packed up on my geforce 3 ti500 card, I searched the internet and found I could get a new fan for it. So I bought a Iceberq4 CCB-A4C (nice blue LED one), unfortunately it appears the thing doesn't fit.

A few questions:
1. Am I right this fan is no good for my card. i.e. Is there anyway to secure fan to board without using the mounting screws?

If yes:
2. Would the thermaltake Blue orb fan fit better? As it looks smaller to me.
3. Where can I buy it in the UK?
4. Are there any other fans I could consider?

If No:
2. How the hell do I fit it?

Thanks in advance

I believe the one you bought or have is the model for ATI cards. For Nvidia cards you want the CCB-A4P, Iceberg 4 Pro.

If you can't send it back, probably the only way to get it to work would be using thermal tape to hold it on the GPU.

Hi,

I'm sure this is the right model out of the two fans, the box even lists geforce 3 ti cards as recommended for this fan. The pro fan is even bigger than this one I believe, so i'm sure I have the more suitable one of the two Iceberq produce. Bit worried about just using themal tape - these fans aren't that light is tape strong enough to hold a fan safely???

Cheers
Mat

Yeah, it is the right model.
The pro version is for the geforce4 ti and fx 5600 only.

I think your card's PCB is not the reference design as supplied by nVidia.

Just for fun, I'm guessing your card brand is Albratron or chaintech

Hi

My card is Special (do you mean it's a cheap version?)

How do I check the manufacturer - can't see it on the card. There is a logo on it if that helps. Sorry pic quality is poor, only have v cheap camera!

Guys, all you need is any good northbridge cooler for that, and mix some 2 part epoxy 50/50 with AS5... and apply...

ragejg - Same card as mine!

You seem to know what youre talking about. Can you be more specific with a model name of northbridge cooler and bear in mind I want an easy one to install.

What would be really helpful is a link, where i can get one online in the UK. Is the blue orb no good by the way - to me it looks great - speaking as someone who knows nothing about cooling!

i did a mod to my GeForce 2 that's very similar to that! Replaced the heatsink on it with an old Socket 370 HSF, modded the fan powerlead, and stock it on with a 50/50 of epoxy and thermal paste... after that i got that mofo of a card to o'c to Ti500 speeds.
